Welcome to Research at the National Archives and Beyond! This show will provide individuals interested in genealogy an opportunity to listen, learn and take action. You can join me every Thursday at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm central, 7pm Mountain and 6 pm Pacific where I will have a wonderful line up of experts who will share resources, stories and answer your burning genealogy questions. All of my guests share a deep passion and knowledge of genealogy and history. My goal is to reach individuals who are thinking about tracing their family roots; beginners who have already started and others who believe that continuous learning is the key to finding answers. "Remember, your ancestors left footprints".
